FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Persons in Montego Bay and its environs seeking legal information are being encouraged to attend a Legal Aid Day on Saturday, September 25, at the Montego Bay Civic Centre Dome, commencing at noon.Executive Director of the Legal Aid Council, Hugh Faulkner, explained that while indepth advice will not be available, persons will get information on a variety of subjects during the two-hour event.“We are inviting members of the public to come for free legal information, so persons who have questions, for example, on land matters, that is, persons who occupy land and are without the requisite title can come and get information as to the steps they can take to regularise their holdings. There will also be attorneys giving information on commencing child custody and child maintenance matters,” Mr. Faulkner noted.The event, which is being organised by the Council, which falls under the Ministry of Justice, will feature presentations from the newly appointed Head of Independent Commission of Investigations, Terrence Williams and a number of organisations. These include the National Housing Trust (NHT), Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP), Dispute Resolution Foundation, the Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO) and the Administrator General’s Department. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.The legal disciplines to be covered include employment, criminal law, restorative justice, landlord-tenant relationship, domestic violence and personal injury.Mr. Faulkner told JIS News that he is expecting a large turnout, as there will be no cost.“We are hoping that persons who had been hesitant to approach lawyers because of the cost involved will take this opportunity to access information that will be available. Sometimes when people take the legal route, you minimise disputes and conflicts. When people know what to do, problems that seem insurmountable you will find that there are legal remedies available to you. This is an attempt for the man in the street to come in and get information,” he said.The Legal Aid Council is the body established by the Legal Aid Act, to administer and supervise legal aid across the island.

Touted as the “Oasis of Nevada,” Churchill County enjoys a prime location in the west-central part of the state as well as proximity to Idaho, California, Oregon and Utah. Reno and Carson City are only an hour away, and Lake Tahoe 30 minutes beyond that.Churchill County has a moderate cost of living and a favorable business tax structure, in common with the state as a whole. Nevada enjoys one of the most liberal tax structures in the nation, having neither state income tax, corporate income tax, inventory tax nor inheritance tax, so the potential for return on investment in the form of tax savings is vast. Other county business advantages include a wealth of resources and low property taxes.The county’s seat and principal city, Fallon, has a hometown atmosphere. This, combined with a temperate climate and access to an excellent transportation network, is ideal for business. The city’s New River Business Park offers existing infrastructure and adaptable lots for new businesses.The median age in Churchill County is 39 years old, and median household income was $45,368, according to the 2016 U.S. Census Bureau.Rail and Transit AccessChurchill County is bisected by two principal highways that link it to western markets, and nearby Fernley, just 27 miles west of Fallon, provides access to east-west Interstate 80. U.S. Highway 95 is a north-south route, while U.S. Highway 50 runs east to west, providing access to Reno and California. Next-day shipments can be made to a majority of the nine states to the west.Union Pacific Railroad provides spur-line freight service to the center of Fallon, and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe also operates over northern Nevada’s tracks.Natural ResourcesThough ringed by high desert, irrigation has turned Churchill County lush with green fields, fertile pastures, and clean rivers and lakes. Crops grown on the county’s 60,000 irrigated acres are diverse and include new and alternative crops like wine grapes and teff. The Newlands Project, a water reclamation project, provides water for about 55,000 acres of Lahontan Valley cropland as well as milk production, and beef cattle ranchers take advantage of the county’s access to public grazing.NAS FallonThe area’s military presence makes for big employment opportunities for the region: NAS Fallon has 5,000 military, civilian and contractor personnel and family members, and job potential is good in a number of sectors.

Built with Yale’s Unitrex XS Max Wear cable and recently awarded a US patent, the Fortis2 Sling has the tensile strength and stiffness of steel wire at one-fifth of the weight, claimes the manufacturer.Yale says that the improved specifications of the sling are revolutionising the way work is done in shipyards, rail yards and other industrial settings, where units weighing hundreds of tonnes need to be lifted and moved frequently.Due to Fortis2 slings being much lighter than their wire counterparts, Yale claims that they are naturally easier to rig. What once took hours and involved a crane or other assistance can now be done manually by just one or two workers in minutes, added Yale.Moreover, said owner of the rope manufacturer, Tom Yale, Fortis2 slings do not pose the same safety hazards as wire; will not absorb water, freeze or rust; and are easier to inspect than wire multipart slings.”We’re looking forward to seeing how different industrial clients choose to leverage this technology,” said Yale. “I could see our maritime customers using Fortis2 to lift equipment in and out of the water, or even to load containers onto barges.”When you consider that on a cargo vessel, every pound of wire or chain displaces a pound of product, and every minute spent on rigging is a delay to consumers, having a lighter lifting sling on board could pay off fast.” www.yalecordage.com
